They say surviving the first year with twins is the hardest and so really we all needed a reason to celebrate. The party turned out super fun and I am excited to (finally!) share all the details with you here!

Design and execution of the party was done by the wonderful Let’s Party event planner service (Rebecca specifically!) If you are looking to throw a party but don’t have the time to dedicate to the details I HIGHLY recommend Let’s Party to help you with ALL your party planning needs! Let’s Party is a boutique party planning service with fresh design ideas for any party!

Location: If you have seen any of my previous parties you know that I am all about hosting my own events but for this party we didn’t have the space since we are still not in our new build yet so I set out to find the perfect local place to fit our needs. That is where I came across Little Explorers of Palm Harbor. Their space is super fun and designed perfectly for mamas with little ones. The babies have their own designated play space and the toddlers have free range of another interactive play space too.

When it came to deciding on the cake I went with Hale Life Bakery which is a local Gluten Free & Vegan Dedicated bakery (that now ships nationally!) Beyond that they are also diary, egg, soy, peanut & tree nut free so with my children and their allergies I know I can trust them and the talent behind the bakers here are incredible!  The cake was amazing and a huge hit among my guests. As mentioned they ship now so I wanted to feature their jar sets shown below. These are the perfect treat to send a friend or loved one and they tasted so rich! wild one party, where the wild things are, one wild year, twin first birthday party, party for twins, wild things party, wild party, party for one year old, one year old birthday party, oh happy playwild one party, where the wild things are, one wild year, twin first birthday party, party for twins, wild things party, wild party, party for one year old, one year old birthday party, oh happy play I decided while planning this party that this could be an event to recreate every year to celebrate new moms in my area. Whether you have one baby or multiples that first birthday is special and a milestone for all. We have baby showers and birthday parties but I thought an event for moms of newly aged toddlers would be fun! I sort of used the boys’ birthday to guinea pig such an event and I want to continue throwing something similar year after year! I was able to get some really cool products for my attendees for them to take home, enjoy and use when they may not have ever been able to do so before. I really think my mama friends enjoyed this part! wild one party, where the wild things are, one wild year, twin first birthday party, party for twins, wild things party, wild party, party for one year old, one year old birthday party, oh happy play

Also included a few Skip Hop backpacks!
When it came to gifts I took this opportunity to get donations for Toys For Tots. Every year at Christmas I find it super important to donate toys to children and families who are less fortunate so I asked our guests to bring an unwrapped toy to donate in lieu of gifts for the boys. Our donation pile was amazing and it brought a lot of joy to some local kids this holiday.

  • It’s an exclusive club and they may be the presidents (in my humble opinion 😍) #thegooddudesclub #raisinggentlemen / @thewishingelephant
  • We’re about a month (month and a half) out from move in of our new home and antsy is an understatement! Things may be kind of slow here over this time as we have to pack up our current home and de clutter like a mofo 😂 So bear with me! I’m also going through and organizing some stuff on my blog to hopefully make my posts more accessible for you all to sort through moving forward. So much fun stuff coming up and I can’t wait to bring it all to you! For now here is the picture that started it all! I shared Joie’s updated nursery featuring her floor bed many moons ago and it blew up. Everyone loved the idea of this floor bed (which is really just a trundle bed with no wheels) and from this I created a blog to dish all the details. And 3.5 years later here we are 🙋🏻‍♀️ Thank you to everyone new and old who has made this journey so much fun! #homewithnoelle #floorbed #montessorifloorbed
  • There’s something about wanting to disinfect and clean my whole house after that run the Flu gave us the last few weeks. #ad That’s about the same time I stock up on all the things from Lemi Shine.  I know I can trust their better-for-you line which gives me the safe ingredients I need for my family but also the power of citric extracts to clean the way I need my surfaces cleaned (and without leaving behind any toxic residues!) Lemi Shine recently launched some of their amazing products at select Publix locations over Florida so make sure to check yours to see if they’re carrying it yet! You definitely will want to give this line of cleaning products a try! #cleanbetterdobetter
  • Finally sharing ALL the details from the boys’ first birthday #ontheblog now 🎉✨ See all the decor, the adorable set up I had for the boys, all the great favors and gifts we were able to donate to toys for tots! It was such a memorable day! #onewildyear #wildonebirthday #twins1stbirthday
  • Getting their new @diono Rainier 2 AXT car seats adjusted before school pickup for the girls and I can’t get over how grown up these little boys are looking 💙💚 They’re both shooting up physically and developmentally and it’s so fun to watch! Also, #twinmoms please send me all the tips on getting them to the car and in their seats safely because switching from infant seats to convertibles with twins has been a learning curve 😂 (note: I realized after this picture that Beau’s headrest needs to be lower) #diono #rainier2axt
